Ukrainian political sovereignty has existed only in brief periods for the last 1,000 years. Ukrainian culture and sensibility, however, was inviolate and preserved in the arts. Visual art, poems, epics sung by kobzari were the true rubrics ofUkrainian culture. Soviet authorities recognized this and tried — and failed — to evaporate this culture.
